Hearts


Hannah and Will began collecting ornaments with their first Christmas together; each had a special meaning.

This year, they found their first ornament, a red heart, shattered in its wrappings. Hannah was inconsolable, crying that it could never be replaced. 

On Christmas Eve, Will tenderly handed Hannah a box he said was fragile and very special. Carefully opening the package, Hannah tearfully found inside a heart ornament identical to their original ornament. On the attached note Will had written, “A renewal of our love and commitment.”

  4. That's beautiful! We have one of those special ornaments on our tree, too.

    Sorry we've been scarce this week. Thank you for your kindness in the wake of Moosey’s passing. He was a very special boy, and we love and miss him so much. The outpouring of love and support by our friends has been such an encouragement during this difficult time.

  10. Such a special and sweet story. We have been collecting ornaments since we first married as well. Today when I was hanging ornaments, I hung the first ornament we ever received as a couple in 1973 from Tom's mom. She gave us several ornaments through the years, and each is on the tree. She passed away in 1980, so they are a nice remembrance. Love and warm hugs, Janet
